‘We’ll be back’: USA captain Tyler Adams vows to continue to ‘show the world what we are made of’ as he thanks fans for their support after World Cup exit against Holland
Captain Tyler Adams vowed the USA would continue working despite its heartbreaking World Cup exit.
The midfielder had a tough game against the Dutch on Saturday, with his failure to mark Memphis Depay leading to the first goal of the match and eventually resulting in a 3-1 win for Holland.
However, despite coming up short, Adams insisted the young American team would continue its work.

‘What a ride. So honored to be a part of such an amazing team, these boys are something special,’ Adams’ tweet read.
‘Came up short, but the work continues to show the world what we are made of. Thank you everyone for the support in the past weeks it’s meant everything to us. We’ll be back.’
In addition to Adams, three other USMNT teammates posted their thanks for fans’ support on social media.
‘I’m not sure how to wrap this up, but I felt the need to say THANK YOU !! This has been the greatest honor of my whole life and I will cherish the memories we made forever,’ starting goalkeeper Matt Turner posted.
‘A lot to learn but still an amazing experience, thanks to everyone for the support,’ wrote striker Haji Wright.
‘Couldn’t be more proud of this group. We left it all out there. Thanks for your support @USMNT,’ wrote midfielder Cristian Roldan, who didn’t make an appearance this tournament.

For a team that made its first appearance at a World Cup since 2014 by fielding one of its youngest squads ever, the results are saddening, but also a sign of things to come.
By the time the United States hosts the World Cup with Canada and Mexico in 2026, players on this roster will be older and more experienced – possibly under a new manager.
USMNT boss Gregg Berhalter and his coaching staff have their contracts expire at the end of this World Cup tournament.
While it’s not clear what direction US Soccer will go in, Berhalter’s team will be remembered as one that defended well, but failed to generate many meaningful chances.
